its Eichah, the Book of Lamentations.

commemorates the destruction of both temples in Jerusalem.

name "tisha b'av" means Ninth Day of Av (a month). Supposedly the Messiah is supposed to be born on this day. This could be our year ::crosses fingers:: heh.

Two two destructions were the Babylonians and the Romans. People generally also use the day to remember other tragedies. It's a pretty sad day.

An interesting fact: World War I also began on Tisha B'Av.
